"Season's greetings" just got much sweeter.

Baked goods and festive treats of all types are one of the hallmarks of the holiday season. In a perfect world, sometimes people even get together to decorate gingerbread houses or exchange Christmas cookies. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the 2020 holiday season probably isn't going to work like that. 

The good news is that you don't have to completely forsake cookies or your connections to loved ones in these strange, unprecedented times. For one such option, consider turning to the lovely Mrs. Fields, who have found a way to offer a Heartfelt Holiday Gram to anyone who wants to spread a little customized cheer.

In essence, it's a nine-inch heart-shaped semisweet chocolate chip cookie cake, wreathed in two colors of icing that can be chosen to fit you or your loved one's preferred aesthetic. You can't go wrong with a little red and green at this time of year, but nobody's stopping you from opting for purple and brown if that's what you really want. 

The best part, though, is the fact that you can write a custom message of up to 20 characters on your Heartfelt Holiday Gram, letting someone special know you're on their mind. Naturally, this baked good is fully deliverable, so anyone near or far can receive the gift of a little holiday warmth, which just so happens to taste like chocolate chip cookies

And because nobody's willing to pay full-price for anything at this time of year (especially not in 2020), there are plenty of opportunities to save from the usual $39.99 list price. From November 22 through Black Friday, you can enjoy 25% off the list price, but a little patience will yield an even better deal: In honor of National Cookie Day on December 4, you can enjoy 40% off (so you'll pay about $24) between November 29 and December 6. After that, it's back to 25% off for the rest of December. 

So if you can't be there in person this year, send a cookie cake. It won't totally replace your absence, but it'll surely spread some cheer at a time when it's desperately needed. Or just send it to yourself and dig in. Your secret's safe with me.
